For a long time, I've lovingly admired the Prada Saffiano Lux Double-Zip tote (you know the one---every blogger and their mother has this bag). But $2,430 for a bag is not only impossible on my budget, but it also seems really wasteful in my eyes (do you know how many months of mochi ice cream that much money can buy me?!)
However, I really loved the shape of the Prada bag, and I was intent on purchasing a similar bag for law firm interviews and work. I considered a lot of dupes for Prada's lux double-zip, including the Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip and Michael Kors Selma satchel but $500 and $350 still seemed like a lot for a single bag. When I finally found this Ralph Lauren Newbury Double Zip at Marshall's though, I knew it would be the perfect dupe for the Prada at under $200. It's still the most that I've ever spent on a single item, but I can (and will have to!) use this bag for years to come.
If you would like a closer look at the Newbury, I can do a separate review post later.
